The new tour comes on the heels of his April Netflix special Baby J, for which he was nominated for two Emmys for Outstanding Variety Special (Pre-Recorded) and Outstanding Writing For A Variety Special.

He had three previous Netflix specials as well: The Comeback Kid, Kid Gorgeous and John Mulaney & the Sack Lunch Bunch, which are all streaming on Netflix.
Mulaney was a staff writer on Saturday Night Live where he is credited alongside Bill Hader with creating the recurring Stefon character.
The comedian has been open about his long history of struggles with drug addiction and alcoholism and often used his personal stories in his act.
In 2014, the Documentary Now writer said he’d been sober since September 2005.
In December 2020, he checked into a rehab program for cocaine, alcohol and prescription drug abuse.
In 2021, he admitted that he checked into rehab in September 2020 but left the program to host SNL in October 2020 and relapsed after that.
His friends – including Seth Meyers, Natasha Lyonne, Fred Armisen, Bill Hader and Nick Kroll – staged an intervention which led to his December 2020 trip to rehab.
Mulaney split from his wife of seven years, Annamarie Tendler in May 2021 and announced he was expecting a baby with his current girlfriend Olivia Munn, 43, in July of that same year.
